There is no Kohler, Wisconsin without John Michael Kohler, the man who founded the Kohler empire (a manufacturing company known for their faucets, bathtubs, and more) more than 130 years ago. John Michael Kohler’s son, Walter, erected what is now The American Club as a progressive dormitory of sorts for its factory workers. The village of Kohler sprang up surrounding the Club, designed in partnership by the Olmsted Brothers—the same Frederick Law Olmsted who designed Central Park. As a master-planned community, Kohler boasted ample green space for picnics, concerts, and parades. Today, Kohler is a family-friendly destination, home to luxury accommodations at The American Club and legendary golf courses, a full-service spa, and multiple dining outlets.
